Devil’s ivy, also called golden pothos, is a tropical, evergreen vine which can be grown indoors as a hardy, carefree plant in any zone. I have a very big healthy one already, and I decided I’d like to make another one. Instead of buying a new plant, I thought I’d propagate from the existing one!
This is extremely easy to do and the results are quick…
How to propagate a Devil’s Ivy plant
- Snip a small length of stem just under the woody protrusions of the leaves.
- Cut the stem of your plants at an angle, this helps it take in water until it takes root.
- Place them in a glass jar so just the roots are sitting in water.
- Don’t allow leaves to sit in water.
- Cuttings need partial sun – a windowsill with bright, filtered light is best.
- Leave for about 2 weeks until you see good protruding roots.
- Transfer your new plant into moist potting soil.
2 weeks later…
It’s as simple as that! Now I have a new Devil’s Ivy waiting to grow long and luscious like its big Mumma next door. I plan on using it as a hanging plant once it takes off.
I’ll come back and edit this post in a couple of months so you can see how’s it’s going.
